Aug. 24, 2017

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. announced today that SKY Perfect JSAT (SJC) selected ts satellite interference geolocation solution. SJC becomes the first satellite operator to take advantage of satID’s most recent TDMA network geolocation capability to combat VSAT interference and assure the highest quality of service for customers.

SJC, Asia’s largest satellite operator, purchased satID in part because of its highly scalable architecture and powerful interference mitigation capabilities. The system enables the cost-effective expansion of SJC’s geolocation capability to multiple sites using the existing operational antennas at C and Ku band.

“We continually invest in technologies that help us provide the best possible service to customers and satellite service users,” said Hideo Hayashi, General Manager of SJC’s Service Operations Division. “The new satID system will help us significantly expand and improve our geolocation efforts and address interference issues caused by the growth of VSAT systems with the latest in TDMA geolocation technology.”

“The satID TDMA geolocation capability dramatically increases the reliability, traceability and accuracy of results,” said David Wilkinson, Kratos’ satID Product Manager. “NOC staff are able to significantly accelerate troubleshooting efforts by identifying the specific VSAT terminals causing interference and pinpointing their exact location.”
